9:00am
we want to create over 100,000 square feet of retail, that could be restaurants, other retail. but that's not really what we're building. really, what we're building is memories. and i don't know about you, but some of my fondest memories growing up are with my father, going to a sports arena and sharing a few hours of an athletic competition. that became part of our relationship. and i think the people of local 2 led by mike casey and his leadership team, the people you see behind me, they're really the people that are going to be responsible for and creating those memories. and that's something that's going to be shared by citizens of san francisco and the entire bay area for generations to come. so, mayor, we thank you and your staff for the leadership that you've given us every step of the way here. to mike casey, thank you for being a partner and we look forward to working with you in
9:01am
the future. thanks very much. >> thank you. come on up, mike. and i know you have others that are with you as well. >> first of all, i want to compliment the warriors on their choice of colors. [laughter] >> happens to be the same colors as local 2, although i think we're a little older organization. i don't know who had the colors first, but in any event, you've got great taste. [laughter] >> so, i wanted to also thank the mayor and his team for really bringing people together and laying this out. it's remarkable the way this whole development is coming together, looking at all the different stakeholders. we were brought in at the very outset. so, mayor lee, i want to really compliment you and thank you for your leadership in this. this really is, as rick said, about building memories. but it's also about building communities and we build communities by establishing jobs that provide people living
9:02am
wage, that really support working families. and we're proud that the jobs that our members do in san francisco, whether it happens to be in the hotels or whether it happens to be at the sports arenas like at&t, or whether it happens to be in a restaurant or a private club in this city, our members are able to have fully paid health care for themselves and their families, retirees have health care to look forward to, and we have real pensions that people can at least help support social security. these are important aspects of the jobs that the industries that we represent workers in have provided. and we're grateful that the warriors have done this. but even more importantly because this is important for us, not just because of the jobs that san franciscans will have, but because of the work and the jobs that have been, you know, held by oakland residents for years. and when we asked and talked
9:03am
about workers from the oakland arena being able to have first shot at the jobs over here, they were very supportive of that. and i think that speaks a lot about what this project is. it's not just a san francisco project. it's a bay area project. it's a project in which working families throughout the bay area will be able to make a living. so, i just want to thank the warriors for seeing it in those big pictures and big terms. and, mr. mayor, for you to really have the insight and the leadership in bringing everybody together. i'd like to introduce wyling hoover who is our leader in oakland. and after wyling comes up, i'd like johnny stakes who is a worker at the oakland arena and billy who works at the ballpark here to say a couple words. >> hi, wyling from local 50. i must say that we will be sad to see the warriors go and we
9:04am
prefer for them to stay in oakland. we're really delighted at how we're being embraced here today and being welcomed into san francisco. on behalf of the over 500 workers who currently work at the oracle arena, a dozen or so like johnny and luz here today who have been there more than 30 years, literally hundreds of them have been there working with the warriors for over 20 years. and, you know, those are good jobs. the warriors have been responsible employers through their various contractors over the years. and we're really delighted to be here today and to, you know, to be part of this historic agreement that's going to, you know, preserve the opportunities that have been so important to our members. they're going to be in good hands if they come over here, when they come over here to be part of local 2. and we're really delighted to be here. thank you.
9:05am
>> good morning. my name is johnny stake. i've worked at the oracle arena for over 30 years. i thought it was important that i show up for this meeting, press conference, just to show support for the workers in oakland so that we can continue with our seniority and all of our economic benefits that we currently receive. when the new arena is built over here. a lot of us showed up today. we thought it was extremely important that we be allowed to continue employment in the new arena. >> good morning. my name is billy feliciano. i have worked at the ballpark for over 40 years and my entire family has benefited from the good union jobs at these facilities. both my sons have worked at the ballpark and my sisters worked at the arena. and i'm so glad that hundreds
9:06am
of other individuals will be able to have the same opportunities that i have had over the 40 years at being able to work in the hospitality area. thank you. >> thank you, billy. johnny, thank you very much. thank you again for being here as well. so, let's get on with job creation. and i'm going to ask rick and mike to step up here and put their signatures on this agreement. [laughter]
9:07am
>> details. [laughter] (applause) >> thank you. >> thank you. >> yes, please. >> [inaudible] the jobs that the oracle arena the job is in now? >> the jobs at the oracle arena right now is oakland, 20 50, they're not here. we have different locals in the east bay and in san francisco. >> same union? >> same union, same international union. and both jobs are union in oakland. * most jobs are union in oakland. >> please talk in the microphone. >> the workers will be given first crack at those jobs. in addition, there are going to be a lot of other jobs. there will be restaurants, possibly hotels the mayor
9:08am
mentioned. and those jobs are also covered by the neutrality agreements. >> the mayor was talking about 1700 other jobs, but there were in the employees group, 45 employees outside, a smaller number inside the arena. i'm sure you've done the math because you know some idea. out of those 1700, what is your estimate of how many of them will end up being union jobs? >> well, you it's hard to judge because this is going to be a year round -- i shouldn't speak to this. rick knows better than i. but it's going to be pretty much a year round venue. * so, there are jobs other than just basketball events. there are going to be other catering events, perhaps other, you know, concerts and those types of things. and our agreement extends across the board in the arena itself. and then as the mayor mentioned, if they have smaller
9:09am
operators like a restaurant or a little outlet inside, that, anything over 15 people will be union in that event. and then if they have like a larger restaurant or other type of food and beverage operation, anything with 45 workers or more will also be included in the card check agreement. >> and then perhaps you know. what is kind of the ballpark arena average, the average salary of the people who work in -- these are concession jobs. >> it ranges as much as the jobs themselves range. so, you have full-time workers who are employed. you have a lot of part-time workers. i'm sure some of the people represented here are part-time workers who are only working at the game. so, really -- >> [inaudible]. >> my constituent. >> the hourly rate, again, we're not negotiating. [laughter] >> i want to be clear. [laughter]
9:10am
>> so, the ballpark -- the ballpark figures right now at the ballpark, the hourly wage for most concession workers is 16.40 an hour. and then that's in addition to that is health care and pensions. but that's to be negotiated, you know, what we do, you know, here in the new arena. >> everyone will be around for individual questions after. thanks for coming. >> thank you. (applause) ...

9:13am
identify myself on there, but i have attended all of the public workshops for input on pier 30, 32, and i would ask this commission and the staff to direct everyone who is a negotiating party to when they attend these public meetings to shut up and identify themselves. there was a lot of furor at my table at the latest est session which was quality of life because one of the negotiators of the warriors sat at our table and had input and was very vocal and didn't identify herself with the warriors until the entire thing was over, and people freaked out. i request that
9:14am
there be a rule and enforced on all negotiations, particularly the golden state warriors that in the case the port, owd and particularly the warriors not participate as members of the public, and wear big badges saying who they are because people hide behind anonymity and i know because i of around the block oweb -- i don't know the golden state warriors but the know the port and oweb but i'm unusual and most are true civilians and it's unfair for them to have to argue from a person from one of these groups when you're soliciting public
9:15am
input. either shut the hell up and/or identify yourself and this came out directly from the last session of the input on 32-32 because the warriors went way over the line. thank you. >> okay. any further public comment? okay. >> item four is executive session. >> so moved. >> second. >> we are in executive session.
